The National Post reports in its Wednesday, Oct. 9, edition that a New York venue has cancelled an encore screening for Jordan Peterson's new movie, stating that the film made some staff uncomfortable.
The Post's Devika Desai writes that in an e-mail circulated to customers who had bought tickets to the show, The Rise of Jordan Peterson, at the Shapeshifters Lab in Brooklyn, filmmakers explained that it was cancelled at the last minute, "due to some staff feeling uncomfortable during the first screening."
Customers will be refunded.
This is the second time a public venue has cancelled a screening of the movie. In September, the Carleton Cinema in Toronto cancelled what was supposed to be a week-long run of the documentary due to complaints brought forward by theatre employees.
Peterson, a University of Toronto psychology professor, is an occasional contributor to the National Post. He entered the public spotlight due to videos in which he aired divisive views on political correctness and gender identity. The movie premiered internationally at the Cineplex theatre in Toronto on Sept. 26.
